Exactly one year ago today my first book was published. This book:
(Isn’t that a beautiful cover?)
I knew I wanted to publish a book one day when I was in first grade. Not just be a writer, but publish a book. And that finally happened last year, a few days before I turned 45 years old. Sometimes I wish I’d started earlier, but I wasn’t ready all those other times.
This was the story that stuck with me for years and years. My character, Josh Conrad, followed me for a long time (over a decade) until I finally started writing his story in November of 2012. And then it took me over three years to learn how to write and how to tell a story before I was ready to get it published.
I’m glad we stuck with each other. Happy birthday, Josh and Sofia! (And happy book-birthday to me!)
